Only The Bible Teaches True Love

     I have said in this column previously that I cannot support the official Black Lives Matter organization because of their desire to do away with the “western-described nuclear family” and their approval of the LGBTQ lifestyle.  I would think (and hope) that a very large percentage of black Americans feel the same way I do.  If that isn’t enough to question that organization, then how about this:  A Black Lives Matter protest burned Bibles in Portland recently.  Burned Bibles!
     The only hope for true social justice for all races is to be found in that book.  Nelson Mandela said “No one is born hating another person because of the color of their skin….people must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love”.  Jesus is the only teacher of the process that must take place for a person to be taught pure love.  You see, only when one’s hate is seen as a sin, an abomination to God, will it ever be eradicated.  Only when one truly repents of that sin and turns away from it can life-changing love for all people take place.

     The Bible is the only place a person will find that.  It will not be found in a communist manifesto or a socialist handbook. It will not be found in BLM pamphlet.  It will not even be found in codified civil law. It can only be found between the covers of God’s word to us; His commandments, directives, and precepts.  And make no mistake about it, a person can only live according to the word of God when that person is saved by the grace of God through the blood of Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit.\

     So why then, Black Lives Matter, do you burn the only book that is the ultimate solution to all of your problems?  I’ve always said, and it is especially relevant in this era, that Jesus is the answer to every question and the solution to every problem.     
Say good things about your Savior and Church on The Bluff!
